Finally got round to trying out a PanoDrop from the sky. I put a GoPro in 0.5 of a sec timelapse mode, and sent the DJI Phantom up. I had it in GPS mode so once I’d found a position I thought would look good I rotated the heli around slowly to capture a selection of images to make up the 360° panorama. From there I stitched the stereographic image as normal. Hopefully I’ll get round to making a few of these :)
This was made using a 16bit TIFF work flow. All the Gigabytes, but all the quality.

That’s right. After a year of work panodrop.com finally goes live. Its been a fun project but I couldn’t have estimated the amount of time, effort and not to mention money, it would take to get something like this up and running. All a valuable learning experience however.

This summer I finally made it to Outlook festival in Croatia. This post is a collection of photos and video I took while out there. There wont be much chat, as it’s hard for me to explain in words what it was like. What I can say is, it was one of the most enjoyable weeks of my life..
Click below and hopefully my photos and videos can do it some justice..
So Its been while since my last post… I don’t know why but I seem to have very little spare time nowadays. I guess working a full time job really does take its toll on personal projects and keeping things updated. Any way at the beginning of April I went back out to the French Alps with some friends from Nottingham Trent Uni. Once again we had an awesome time. The snow wasn’t amazing with it being towards the end of the season, however the X-games were held there only a few weeks before so the parks were top level. We spent most the days shredding them up. I filmed quite a bit again.. standard, this time I didn’t edit all the footage to music etc so I just created a few little videos that consisted of the best bits, these went up on facebook.
I did get time to produce the following little edit. While on the slope I had the idea of the camera pole floating between people by getting someone to carry it from behind. We did a few trial runs and it actually ended up being quite difficult. The person being filmed had to remember not to get the person who handed the camera to them in shot. The person taking the camera around had to make sure their shadow wasn’t in the shot. We tried it a few times, The following edit has been chopped up a bit to make it go to the beat, also to cut out any bits where you could see the carrier.
Hit MORE… for more.
I found some more photos from my recent trip to the French Alps that needed editing. I had a bit of spare time last night so I got to work.
The First one below was a fairly easy job. There was minimal tweaking the only thing I had to remove from the stitched images was my shadow. This was really easy with this shot because snow is dead easy to clone with out being noticeable.
I’m currently In a pretty sweet spot at the moment… Tribe the company I’ve been doing freelance work for the past couple of months offered me a 6 month contract. It goes with out saying that I was very happy to accept this kind offer. I started the full time job last week. Because I’m still living at home (Quorn) I’m Having to commute in to Notts everyday which takes around 40 min.. not ideal but its not so bad. I’m currently working on about 5 projects that vary in size. The standard of work here at tribe is very high which is really good for me because it pushes me to perform at my best. I hope I can post up some of the projects I’ve been working on because I’m pretty proud of the results.
